Forum: announcements Subject: A Future for Books: BookServer launch event

The Internet Archive launched BookServer to a group of 500 in San Francisco. The BookServer is a new distributed lending and vending system for books on the Internet. We will demonstrate a live system where:   Publishers and booksellers are selling digital books on their own terms,   Libraries loaning digital out-of-print books to their patrons,   Readers finding and reading the books they love on   Reading devices of their choice. A group of companies and libraries demonstrated this open system for the first time. Here is a an independent post about the proceedings.
